Are You a Parks and Rec fan and a Rising College Senior? Well This is Perfect For You Then!

Class of 2019, we are almost seniors!

Are You a Parks and Rec fan and a Rising College Senior? Well This is Perfect For You Then!

I remember being a senior in high school but now I'm almost a senior in college. Whoa, where has the time gone?! It's a bittersweet feeling. When school gets tough, we might all think to ourselves "I can't wait to graduate." Well now that is going to happen in a year and some change from now. It's something I cannot stop thinking about lately and I'm sure all second semester juniors are starting to feel this as we are having to start preparing for our senior year of college. To get us through this challenging time, I figured I could find some times where the Parks and Recreation cast felt the same way we are feeling throughout this process!

Thinking about how you only need to get through two more semesters

Ron's happy grin is everything! You know that it is genuine because not much can make Ron smile or laugh.

Trying to maintain good grades, involvement in clubs/organizations, having a social life, and trying to find a summer job/internship all at the same time

We definitely need more than 24 hours in a day to get our lengthy to-do lists done! There's so much to do in so little time.

Trying to dodge all the "What are you doing after graduation?" type of questions like

We all don't know exactly what we are going to be doing with our lives next spring after graduation. We may or may not have an idea of what we want to do but you know what? That's okay because we still have some time left to figure it out!

How you imagine yourself in that class you've been trying to avoid taking your whole college career

I'm sure we all have that one class we have trying to avoid taking but now it's time. Will we survive it? Definitely. But do we think we can? No!

How we will we feel while registering for next semester's classes

That senior priority starts to kick in!

When you find out that two classes you need to take to graduate have the same meeting time

How is this going to work? We cannot be in two classrooms at once so....

When you somehow managed to create schedules that will not have you in class every single day of the week

No idea how we got here but let's not question it. If you can get away with at least having no classes on Friday then it will be a great semester!

Trying to motivate your best friend while they're a wreck but you're also a wreck

We are all going through it but we are going to get through it together!

When your phone/computer has no storage left or is just nearing the end of its life

Let's face it. This is what we would like to do but in reality we don't do it because phone and laptops are expensive! Haha.

Thinking in general about how you even made it to your senior year of college

You might not want to toot your own horn but you're smart! You got to your senior year because you pushed through all your classes. Perhaps some were good and some were bad but you made it this far and you will absolutely make it through your senior year!

After doing the absolute bare minimum, it feels like you should call for a time to...

This is probably the most dangerous direction to give a college student because we will definitely take this advice and buy some unnecessary stuff. Why not "treat yo self"?! You deserve it right? But in all seriousness, it is okay to treat yourself! Just don't overdo it.

When you realize graduating means you might not be geographically close to your school friends anymore

I'm not crying. You're crying!

When you said you weren't going to procrastinate at looking for jobs/internships/graduate schools but you keep procrastinating

Poor Jerry. We all feel like this when we don't do things as planned.

Finding out that you need to take a class next semester and there's only one section that meets at 8am.

Same exact reaction if it's a night class!

Thinking about all the money you spent on food that could have going toward saving for senior year expenses

Well you don't even have to be a rising senior to relate to this one.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Breaking Down The Beginning, Middle, And End of Netflix's Newest 'To All The Boys' Movie

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
